Ronit Baranga blurs the border with anthropomorphic china

In her series of work  Israeli artist  Ronit  sculpted human mouths and fingers emerging from tableware. The blurred border between the living and the still in these works is intriguing.

” It makes you think. In this combination of the still and the alive joined as one, I try to change the way in which we observe useful tableware. The useful, passive, tableware can now be perceived as an active object, aware of itself and its surroundings – responding to it. It does not allow to be taken for granted, to be used. It decides on its own how to behave in the situation. This is how I prefer to think about my plates and cups. Metaphorically, of course. What about you… ? ”

In this series, the relationship between the “doubtfully alive” vessels becomes physical. They lean on each other, pinching, hugging, embracing and their porcelain bodies react.
